I've been a Turtle too long - Doctor says

Thursday, December 23, 2010

I've been a turtle for awhile, loving the easy pace, not feeling the pressure of having to climb over some obsticle in a rush, only to fall down the other side, breathing hard and feeling exhusted, but this turtle now has to kick it up a notch, per doctor's orders, so if you're hanging onto my tail, it's alright, but get prepared for a burst forward, I have to go. If you're in front of me, excuse me as I make my way around you in a hurry, doctor's after me. I'll try not to run over any of you as I make my way to goal in a rush, and I'll try to say hello to all I pass along the way, but I will probably be out of breath as I pass, so please take my rushing shell in good humor and wish me well. I know I won't enjoy this, but I also know that I need all the cherring I can get. I've got forty pounds to shed as soon as possible, oh, he's not making me run, but I've got to get my brain in gear for this again, so I better start out fast.

I'm currently on some medication that I don't like and the only way off it is to lose the weight or at the end of 30 days when the med runs out and I won't take any more of this stuff! But the bottom line is to get the forty pounds off so I can get off other medication and beat what's got me.

So I wish all of you grand success in reaching all your goals and dreams, health, wealth, and happiness. Have a wonderful Holiday Season. I'm learning how to find otherways to celebrate it instead of eating all the sugary stuff and by finding alternatives to smaller portions, better choices, and healthier cooking while I'm at it.

One thing I know and have known since the day I started this journey is; once I'm at goal, I'm not coming back to where I was at the begining of this journey. I'm going to hang around the goal and cheer the rest of you on! Seems to be my reason for living - cheering others on. It makes me happy to see turtles (people in general) win their goals. Makes me feel good, too.

So excuse my rush, I just need to get there soon.! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Ok I'll watch your run this race.. I know all about getting off the meds... its what keeps me eating right and not over indulging... I think do I really want to see the look on my doctors face when she says I have to go back on those meds.. NO WAY!!!! so I eat my salads...which I love,,,YAY.. I eat my dark veggies.. love them too..YAY!! and drink my water.. my first choice always anyway..another YAY!! I know I need more exercise.. I saw a store while we were shopping for last minute gifts.. Its Rite Aid... thats close to us and it has lots of exercise equipment.. like bands and small weights.. so I plan on going in there after I start working again and pick up some more things... Best of luck with your race to the finish line.. I know it will be a great day when you reach your goal...Ronie

    Your goals and the end-of-medication rewards sound great. I like what you say about how cheering others on seems like your reason for living. Allow me this opportunity to cheer you on! emoticon
